The sport is hugely popular in Denmark, they used to dominate amateur cycling in the postwar era before the Eastern Bloc countries started to solidify.

So only if some GC teams without a sprinter want some action then it will happen.

Btw, it is strange that Pedersen is not interested in the green jersey...
